Beginning April 7 at 6 pm, and running weekly to May 5, Pop-Up Studio offers an inspiring look at an artwork from the AGO Collection, before leaping into a 30-minute drawing exercise inspired by the techniques found in the work. Each week focuses on a new work and technique or style, from collage to watercolour to drawing, with a thematic focus on a diverse array of portraits inspired by the AGO’s Portraits of Resilience project. Pop-in online after your Wednesday workday for this free session, bring along your favourite drink, pencils and paper, and connect with others for a relaxing session.
Start collecting pages of patterns, copies of photos and even old drawings, so we can explore collage techniques inspired by the wondrous work of Louis de Niverville.
Materials list: drawing paper or sketchbook (smooth but with some texture if possible, any size), collage materials with bold colours, shapes and images or texts, scissors and glue/gluestick.
